Meet Lee Philips, Middle East Financial Controller at FMC Technologies
When Lee Phillips was looking to take a progressive, upward step in his career – which would take him to a Head of Finance, or Lead Commercial, or partner to the CEO role – he looked no further than Omer Zakaria from Robert Walters Middle East.
In addition to Omer’s decade long experience of hiring within the Middle East finance sector, Omer had previously placed Lee in his current role – making him the perfect consultant to help him with his next move.
I was initially recruited by Omer of Robert Walters for my current employer. As a result of the very high professionalism and support I received while being recruited then chose to go back to Omer for my own recruitment needs. I have since used Omer on two very successful occasions and two very successful appointments.
Omer took his time listening to Lee’s needs, taking in all the finer detail on what he wanted the next steps in his career to be and what he would like from the organisation.
Omer not only took his time matching Lee’s wants, needs and experience to a company who was seeking out someone similar, but also went over and above to negotiate an attractive package.
Omer asks the right questions to understand your needs as a customer and targets the right candidates from the get-go. In all of the conversations we have held Omer was always focused on securing me the right candidate for the role, company and personality to fit the team. I would highly recommend Omer for all my recruitment activities going forward.
